  1. THE GRADUATION PROCESS So you've joined up--congratulations and welcome to the best roleplaying forum the internet has to offer! You may be wondering, "What is a student?" or "When can I graduate?" Here at Surreality, we pride ourselves on offering quality writing, and we want all of our members--new and old--to feel like their writing skills are consistently improving. As such, when new members join up, they have to meet a few minimum requirements in order to be accepted as a skilled "graduated" role player. These requirements are not steep, and more than 90% of our students graduate fairly quickly. THE PROCESS In order to graduate, a student must be involved in a role play (either with another student, graduate, Scholar or a combination of all three). You will need 5 posts total to apply to graduate. When you have made 5 posts, find your way to this thread and request a Scholar to review your posts. A Scholar will then review your posts, and then send you a PM to let you know if you have been "Accepted" or "Declined". If you have been accepted, you will be added to the Graduate member group and will gain complete access to the forums. If you are declined, you will need to start the process over (getting 5 more posts and then requesting for a scholar). Either way, the Scholar will attach some critiques about your writing, good and bad, to help you become a better writer (we all have room to improve!). THE REQUIREMENTS Now you may be wondering: "What is a Scholar looking for in my posts?" Good question! The Scholar's job is to review your posts for grammatical errors, spelling and continuity within your posts--do your posts make sense? It is important for your posts to be grammatically correct, as well as contain strong content for your fellow players to work with. The 5 post requirement allows us to better determine these qualities in your writing. FAQS Q: I was declined, now what? A: Not to worry! The Scholars exist not only to grade your efforts, but to help you along the way! Please feel free to PM any one of the Scholars and ask them for one-on-one help--that's what they're there for! After you've accumulated five new and different posts, feel free to post in this thread to have your posts graded again. Q: Can I be involved in more than one role play? A: Yes, however 3 out of 5 of your submitted posts need to be within the same role play. The Scholars want to see you flesh out a character in a story. They cannot grade 5 introduction posts. Q: Everyone involved in my role play has since graduated, can I have my role play moved to the ~Official~ Roleplaying Forums? A: You certainly can! Please PM one of the Scholars to have this arranged. Q: Hey! I have more questions than this! What's the deal? A: We're here to help! Please send a PM to a Scholar and they will help you out with any additional questions you may have.

    Excellent! I'm glad you're enjoying the chocolate :)
  3. Secret Santa and Card Exchange Hooray!

    YAYYYYY :D :D :D :D :D :D I'm so glad you got it not too late after Christmas! I couldn't get my hands on the proper size of those safety eyes, I had to order them online! I'm so glad you like it~~~~~ The salted pretzel Dairy Milk is my absolute FAVOURITE. I love it so much. There aren't many foods here that aren't in the United States, but Canada does have great chocolates and candies! I only just learned to crochet this past year, but this isn't my first attempt at the magikarp dice bag. I've made a few others, with various needle sizes and yarn weights. I hope it measures up to a quality dice bag! :D EEEEEEEEEEE so exciteee~
  4. Secret Santa and Card Exchange Hooray!

    So today I saw that a few people have received their secret santa gifts and ran to check my own mailbox to discover that my gift arrived as well! ~~~~~~~ My secret santa was Eth. He made me the coolest Minecraft card and got me a pretty diamond necklace (minecraft diamonds) (more rare than REAL DIAMONDS) My favourite part is the back of the card LOOK AT THIS CUTE CHRISTMAS CREEPER!!! Thank you so much, Eth~ :wub: Also my own secret santa recipient: My gift is going to be the latest of them all, I think. It will arrive after new years. HOWEVER it is ~handmade~ so maybe that is a good consolation. I hope everyone had a great christmas! EDIT: OMG THE "A" IN NIKKIA IS A CREEPERRRR!!

  16. ...and it made me frown

    More and more things like this keep happening and I'm just so frustrated about how people view depression. How it's treated as a whole by, well, everyone. Many many people are depressed or have dealt with depression and even if you haven't dealt with depression you've dealt with simple sadness. Why is feeling sad a weakness? Why is expressing that you feel sad, or feel depressed considered a vulnerability? So many people choose to stuff those feelings deep down inside of them, but honestly it's hurting more people than it helps. It just kind of shows and teaches and tells other people that their depression is something to hide, something to be ashamed of. This makes people feel very very alone.. I've got my own depression-y things going on, so maybe I feel more guilty about Robin Williams than is healthy, but I really think society needs a wake-up call. We're all struggling, why struggle alone? Let's all struggle together at least.

    Nixie is such a cute name. My boyfriend and I are at a loss for names. He really likes Zell, which is a Final Fantasy dude with a cockatiel-like crest. I like Rocco, Aries and Pekoe. We kiiinda agree on Aries, but ah. I don't know yet! I'll have to see him in person probably. :)
